ATP tennis players Marin Cilic, Borna Coric, Ivan Dodig, Mate Pavic, Nikola Mektic, Franko Skugor, their WTA colleagues Donna Vekic and Ana Konjuh, and young Croatian tennis talents Antonia Ruzic and Duje Ajudukovic joined the children of Tordinci School in a football match played on the playground constructed with funds raised from last year’s Game Set Croatia humanitarian event organized by the Marin Cilic Foundation. Croatia’s Davis Cup captain Vedran Martic took on the role he knows best, that of coach, looking on from the sidelines while the tennis players showed off their soccer skills.
“I had a great time with the kids today and I think my fellow tennis players feel the same. It was fun to swap out tennis for some football. I hope this new playground will provide healthy fun and wonderful memories for the kids from this area and hopefully many of them will discover their love for sport here.” – Marin Cilic
